Reduction in Duty Is Being 
Urged Upon the Government 
and It Will Possibly Be 

OTTAWA, Nov. 2.S. — Advlces have 
been received at the <le)>artment of 
trade and commerce that the press of 
I'Yance Is urging upon th government 
a reduction of duty upon wheat entering 
France, owing to the fact that a large 
crop In the northern part of Franco has 
not ripened well, and that it will be 
necessarily to Imiiort a larger quantity 
of Canadian h-trd wlieat than usual in 
order to provide the qtiality of flour 
which French bakers are accustomed to. 

A somewhat «lmilar condition of af- 
' fairs occurre<l In ]8!)8, when prices of 
wheat advanced greatly In I'Vance, and 
the grovornment suspended the duty 
from May 4. 1898, to Juno 30, follow- 

The department Is advised from 
ParlB that the present iiosltlon Indi- 
cates that a reduction of duty is to bo 
expected during the present session.

Dominion Government Pur- 
chases Property for New 
Structure. Plans for Build- 
ing Nearly Complete, 

Commanding an unobstructed view in 
all directions and Ideally situated for 
meteorolojrlcal observations and si.'ismic 
research work, a site, comprising an acre 
and a fifth, has been secured on Gon- 
zales Heights upon which the new i.>o- 
mlnlon government observatory for Vic- 
toria will be erected. The property Is 
situated 210 feet above sea level. It, ad- 
joins the southern end of the land on 
which the wireless station is situated. 
On receipt of a telegram from the 
deputy minister of marine and fisheries 
yesterday, authorizing the purchase of 
this land, the transaction was corn- 

The preliminary plans for the iicwr ob- 
servdtory are now being completed by 
Mr. F. Napier Dcnlson, of the local 
iTioteorological office and will be for- 
warded to the East for approval In the 
course of a few days. 

They «lll allow for a building speci- 
ally adapted to the fine site which lias 
been secured. Special provision will be 
made for the Installation of sflsmo- 
graph.s, the present government having 
already recognized the good work car- 
ried on by Mr. Denlson in selsmologlcal 
research. It Is purposed also to con- 
slderalily extend the range of weather 
forecasting, and to bring this about the 
officials of the observatory will Work 
with the wireleKs station with a view to 
availing themselves for meteorological 
purposes, of mes.sages received from ves- 
sels on the Pacific. 

Other extensions In the work of the 
local branch are contemplated, which 
have hitherto been Impossible owing to 
the lack of rooin and facilities. 

The Ilomlnlon government has already 
.granted for the building of the new oh- 
servator.v, the site and special instal- 
ments, a sum of nearly 1^20,000. 

one. of the capltahi, with a, 
phaslzing tho points arising' dSt if'We 
Balkan war on which the nations are 
already In agrecTnent, is understood to 
have the support of Germany, Franco 
and Russia. 

The idea la to endeavor to avert the 
disposition to drift Into an alignment of 
two groups of the powers forming the 
Triple Alliance and the Triple Kntente 
over Isolated ciucstlons such as caused 
the tension early tliis week. 

It Is antlcli)ated that, without at- 
tempting to reach a detailed settlement 
of all the i.roblems whicli will come up 
for argument at the end of the. war, the 
unibassadors will be able- to register 
an agreement on principle on such mat- 
ters as the future of Albania, the dis- 
position of the islands In tiie Aegean 
Sea and the opening or closing of tiie 

Subjacta of Agraamant 

For instance, the powers apparently 
are all ready to recognize Albanian In- 
dependence and to pledge themselves 
not to seek WrrltorlaJ-ncJitrhsllion in tho- 
Aegean Sea. 

Some revision of the standing of the 
Dardanelles seems to follow the changes 
of the map arising front the war, and 
there Is a disposition to believe that they 
will be maintained open on a basis cf 
equality for all nations. 

Problem.s like the •Aitstro-Servian dif- 
ficulty will be left for settlernent after 
peace has been concluded. 

The main object of the proposed con- 
ference Is to brhur the powers into 
C.'onlinwrd on Pajtr ',' Col. T>.

Vancouver's milk supply In all Us 

Tho commissioners, I'r. A. I'. Proctor, 
chairman; Dr. J. Coultluiid, and Dr. An- 
son Knight, chief veterinary inspector, 
heard testimony from Dr. F. T. Under- 
bill, Vancouver's medical health officer. 

Dr. Underbill declared that Vancou- 
ver's milk supply Is not clean, and that 
its proportion of butter fat Is not up to 
retiulrements. Ho said adulteration 
still continues, bvit that the use of pre- 
servatives hud been stopped. 

The commissioners remarked that 
they found that the Dominion and pro-

ing In their regulations governing the 
Inspection of milk, proper grading and 
^unitary requirements. They suggested 
that the two governments must co-oper- 
ate and bring about a smooth working 
set of regulations, so that the viol.-itors 
could be properly punished.

««Pt tfeMlt the Austrian demand on 9^x. 
via Is ah Irreducible minimum, frbrrt 
which neither the powers nor Servla 
will be able to subtract a particle. 

The Neueswlener Tagblatt declares, 
he adds, in a seml-ol'flclal note, that 
Austria will not '.How Servla tu pos- 
sess Durazzo under any clrcui'iisn-inccb 
whatever, and "that Servla v.-ir. he 
obliged to evacuate Duratzo, to- 
gether with the rest of Albania. 

Commenting, the correspondent says 
that a declaration of this kind ha,.; bel- 
ter be left to Irresponsible journalists 
iind that before the evacuation of "the 
rest of Albania" can be spoken of, Al- 
bania Itself must be defined and Js- 
limited. At present it Is a vague geo- 
graphical expression. 

Similarly, the qucstipn of a Servian 
port on the Adriatic requires a pre- 
cise formulation before it cnn be pro- 
fitably discussed. Au.stria a)id Italy 
are entitled to say a word on the

"The prlnclpnl cause of tlip improve-

Liberal Senator Declares in 

Favor of Such a Policy in 

Order to Man the Line of 



OTTAWA, Nov. 28.— In the I'pper 
Chamber today twt) members. Senator 
Patrirk C. Murphy, of TIgnlsli, P.K.I., 
and Senator William McKay, of Reserve 
Mines. N.S., were Introduced and took 
tl.elr seats. 

The debate on the address was con- 
tinued by Senator Roche, of Halifax. 
He said It wan gratifying to note that 
the governor-general had madp a tour of 
Canada last year and had come Into 
contact with the pooplp at first hand 
anil thereby "wais able to form his own 
opinions of their feeling." 

Senator DomviUc (.\ew Brunswick) 
said there was a good deal of loyalty 
talked of just now, but the question 
for the people to decide was: "Will 1 
fight If fighting comes?" 

He doubted if the Canadian.^ as n 
people were as eager for fighting as 
w«re the Bulg"rlarus, who today were 
dying upon the mountain tops. Today 
Canada was called upon to stand up and 
say what she would do for the Km- 
pire's defence. History would Judge 
her by wh,-it she did today. He did 
not think much of tho idea of handing 
over thirty million dollars to b^ngland 
to build ships with. He did not think 
the proposal would go down with the 
people, and ICngland did not need the 
money. .'anada would have to go to 
lOngland to get the money and, after It 
was brought to Canada, It would be 
returned to Knglnn.l to be spent there. 
lOng^and rfow liad all the money ft\\e 
wanted and could builJ all the ships 
she wanted. 

What was required was men. The 
beat thing, therefore, the government 
could do would be to have a compulsory 
naval service, Vf the people of Canada 
wanted to fight they should be given 
the best chance possible. Parliament 
shoulil give the government as much 
money as It wanted for the building of 
flhipa in Canada, though they coat 
tslltce what they would if thay were 
buin ij^mewher* else.

Member for Greenwich, Mr, 
J, Hamilton Benn, Believes 
British Government to Be 
Nearing Its End, 

VANCOUVKR, B. C, Nov. 28.— Mr, J. 
Hamilton Benn, .M. P. for Greenwich, 
who arrived in this city yesterday, is 
more than ever convinced that tlie pres- 
ent government in Great Britain is on 
Its last legs, and he would not be sur- 
prised to see the Asqulth administration 
collapse before the end of the present 
session. W^hen in Vancouver In Septem- 
ber last he predicted an election In the 
motherland before the end of next year.

LONDON. Nov. 29,— "We have now 
occupied Durazzo for perpetuity," is 
the telegram which General Jankovltch, 
the Servian commander, has sent to the 
government at Belgrade. 

The fact tliat the government has 
made public this message, says the 
Vienna correspondent of The Dally 
Telegrajih, is regarded as proving Sor- 
via's Irreconcilable attitude. Budapest 
liapers assert that Servla Is mobilizing 
against Austria and intends to form 
a new army, armed with the guns cap- 
tured from the Turks. 

The Servian.^, ignoKlBg-rth« proclama- 
tion of Albanian independence, have oc- 
cupied Durazzo without resistance. Thus 
the conflict is now raifced in acute 
form between Austria and Servla, and 
It remains to be seen whether the Aus- 
trian government will take any direct 
action. The Servian action, ctupled 
with tlu' warlike feeling prevailing at 
Vienna, it i» likely to keep up contin- 
ued anxiety.

• OTTAWA, Nov. 28. — Mr. A. C. Boyce 
f (.Algoma), and Hon. I-^ank Oliver en- 
gaged in a lively tiff this evening. The 
Algoma member accused the ex-min- 
ister of being more solicitous about 
the events of the Macdonald by-elec- 
tion than lie had ever been about the 
practices In ills own regime. Mr. 
Boyce cited the case of Philip Wagner, 
an official of the interior department, 
wlio was convicted of preying upon 
iminigr«nts and stealing their money. 
For. this 1)0 was jailed and on his re- 
lease was promoted by the minister. 

"In my iudgment Mr. Wagner was 
the euhject of persecution," inter- 
jected Mr. Oliver. 

Mr. Boyce returncfi to the attack, 
saying that both Mr. Oliver and his 
leader. Sir AA'ilfrld Laurler, liad voted 
down a resolution for investigation 
into "the thief and thug" whom they 
had taken to their bosoms and pro- 
moted. Ho proceeded to accuse Mr,

Mr. AVinston Churchill, replying, ad- 
mitted that it was not a British air- 
ship. He confessed that Great Britain 
had no airship equal to the Zeppelins 
or capable of travelling sixty milea an 
hour. The navy had aeroplanes capable 
of travelling seventy miles an hour, 
but there was no dout that Germany 
held tho pre-eminence in airships. 

CcloneJ Seeley said the army had five 
aeroplanes capable of making seventy

" 'Having forded the Wind rlv^. Captain

ceeded across a gravelly plain. Ilere they 
came across numerous droves of buffalo and 
hi^lied- for the purpose of securing a supply 
of beef. As the hunters were stealing 
cautiously lo get within shot of the game, 
two small white bears suddenly presented 
themselves In their path, and, rising upon 
their hind legs contemplated them for some 
time with a whlmslCBlly, solemn gaze. The 
hunters remained motionless: whereupon 
the bears, having apparently satisfied their 
curiosity, lowered themselves upon all fours, 
and began to withdraw. The hunters now 
advanced, upon which the bears turned, rose 
again upon their haunches, and repeated 
tholr serio-comic examination. This was 
repealed several times, until the hunters, 
piqued al their unmannerly staring, rebuked 
It with a discharge of their rifles."

Kamor That Ooveriunoat and Q-. T. P. 
-wm Sbaie Cost Is Slatinctly 


Referring to the many reference* that 
have appeared in the provincial press of 
late having for their text the stated de- 
termination of the government to eroct a 
Joint traffic and railway bridge In partnership 
with the Q. T. P. Railway Company, at Kort 
Ffaser, Deputy Minister Foster states that 
this announced Intention of the government 
is erroneous and decidedly premature. 

Correspondence has taken place with the 
railway company, and the fact has been 
ascertained that that company Is willing to 
be Joined by the government In the erfct- 
tlon of such a bridge as suggested. It is 
now the business ot the department to lii- 
vestlgale fully the question of cost, ani 
ascertain if the Joint bridge proposed can 
be built with no more expense In the gov- 
ernmental contribution than would suffice 
to erect an Independent vehicular traffic 
bridge, when necessity arises for such a 

With respect to the proposed traffic 
bridge at Pitt river, the matter seems to 
be In statu quo. The new bridge at Kam- 
loops has now been completed and Is In 
use, proving a great convenience to the 
directly benefited communities. -r^ 


Kitrlc and Sulphario Acids 8acc«s«fal 

la Kew Boatli "Walaa at a 

TrUli&sf Coat. 

The Agricultural Gazette of New 
South Wales, issued under the direc- 
tion of the minister of agriculture of 
that countrj', aay» a farmer there has 
discovered that a mixture of equal 
parts of sulphuric and nitric acid will 
destroy a stump of tlie hardest wood* 
In a few weeks. 

The stump of a mahog-any tree three 
feet six Inches In diameter was de- 
stroyed so completely In five weeks by 
the use of 12 cents' worth of acid, 
that it could be knocked to pieces 
with a garden hoe. On the subject of 
applying the acid, tue Gazette says: 
"The acids are used in equal jjarts 
and nothing is added to them. A 
hole is horcd In the stump with a two- 
iiicli augur, deep enough to hold the 
quantity of acid lo be used, and then 
one acid l» poured In and the other 
added. The hole Is then plugged air- 
tight with a wooden plug." 

A stump three feet In diameter 
should be treated with about one-half 
])lnt of each add. The nitric acid is 
poured -into the stump first, nnd the 
sulphuric acid is added in all cases, 
and not the reverse. In mixing tliese 
acids much heat is generated nnd oaro 
must be taken not over a. half pint of 
each to be mixed at one time, which 
must be allowed to cool before an.v 
more is added. Both of tiiese acids 
are extremely corrosive and should not 
be allowed to come in contact with the 
person or their clothing.

Twenty Thouaand Dollars Already Sab- 
scribed Tor — Sixty Thousaud 
Dollars Needed 

The Wolfe Monument Fund Organi- 
zation Is now engaged in the work of 
soliciting funds for the erection of a 
monument over or near the grave of 
General Wolfe, says The Montreal Wit- 
ness. It Is estimated that to construct 
a memorial worthy to stand a.s a trib- 
ute to the man who gave Canad.a to 
the Empire, from fifty to sixty thou- 
sand dollars will be required. Of this 
sum an amount approaching twenty 
thousand dollars has already been sub- 
scribed, as follows: ''gMM'y''\ 
Citizens of Vancouveri|^|ip^. . .$ 6,000 
Citizens of Winnipeg .'. .."!..... 4,500 

Citizens of Toronto so far 3,000 

Citizens of other places 1,000 

Lord Strathcona and Lord North- 

cliffe 1,000 

In order that the character of the 
tribute be national, subscriptions are 
being solicited from all over the Do- 
minion. At the head of the movement 
are such men as Sir Gilbert Parker, 
Mr. V. C. Wade, K. C, of Vancouver; 
Sir John Gibson, Lieutenant-Governor 
of Ontario, arid many other prominent 
men throughout the different provinces. 
Mr. H. J. P. Good.^of 79 Adelaide street 
east, Toronto, is secretary of the com- 
mittee having charge of tho movement. 

At the present moment the memor- 
ial to Wolfe Is a small column erected 
by the rank and Hlo of tlie British 
army, quartered In - Canada, in 1849. 
These gallant soldiers, .sacrificing a 
day's pay in order that they might do 
lienor t^o tho memory of Wolfe, gave 
an example which should not he lost 
upon the citizens of Canada.

Audience at Victoria Theatre 

The Victoria thentro was flllod last 
night with an enthusiaslic and appre-

Scottish In ll,s composition. From tho 
time Piper Cameron started his pipes 
at the cfunmencement of the pro- 
gramme till tho strains of Auld 1/ang 
Syn,o was hoard, every moment was 
enjoyed. Madame Burnett's fine so- 
prano was heard to advantage in "An- 
gus Macdonald" and "My Aln Folk" 
for which she was encored vocifer- 
ously. Mr. Ben Waddeil, the Seattle 
tenor, scored a great hit in his "Suc- 
cess tae Bonnie Scotland" nnd gave 
"Annie Laurie" for an encore. He la 
possessed of a fine lyric tenor, and, 
having the broad Doijc, he at once be- 
came a great favorite. Mrs. Long- 
field sang "Fiona" charmingly, and Mr. 
Jesse Longfleld's violin aoloa were 
much appreciated and encored. Mr. 
Morrison's appearance was the signal 
for a great round of applause. He ap- 
peared In Highland costume. Ho re- 
ceived * tremendous encore for hla ren- 
dering of "The Battle of Sterling," to 
which he responded with "That'a the 
Reaaon I'm Wearln' the Ktlt." Mrs. 
Mathers humorous recitation of the ad- 
ventures In a sail boat on tho Clyd« 
won the approbation of the audience 
who demanded an encore. Mlas Shear-

years Qultc prominent in the public eye, 
both by rc.usou of her own personality 
and also because of her husbaiid's repu-

widow of the clerk of the finance depart- 
ment at Otluwa who attained a great 
reputation in the early eighties as a 
weatlier prophet. Mrs. yione-Wlgglna 
is belter known as the woman who fin- 
ally secured the passage through th J 
Canadian parliament of the bill to 1-^gnl- 
Izo marriage with a deceased wife's 
sister. That measure was passed by 
the house of commons once or twice, 
but was rejected by the senate, and then 
Mrs. Stonc-Wlgglns niudc up her liiltld 
that tile bill had to go through, and ehe 
laid slefic to the senators, with the fe- 
sult that tliey finally sucumbed to her 
entreaties and passed the measure.

given by Sir Richard during w^hat Was 
his fa tal. Illness, and, therefore, the vol- 
~ume"may .^ fald to have received hl»*~' 
.personal ailtprijival both In proof and 
:sheet form, A second volume, dealing: 
with publlo affairs from 1896 down to 
1912, is understood to have been left 
behind by the late statesman, and it is 
hoped that it will also sec the light •.■rb 
long, because if it Is half as interosting 
as the first volume It will tlirow irreat 
light upon many things which have bei'u 
.subjects of oonjecturp ever, since the. 
formation of the Laurler cabinet in 1896. 
The predomlnent note of^the first 
volume Is, of course, air Richard's In- 
tense hatred of Sir John A. Macdonald, 
whom he insults in the bitter uer- 
.s&nal style; hut the feature oi' the hook 
Is hl.s cinslaught upon the late Hon. 33d- 
ward Blake. He asserts that a.t practic- 
ally every critical point In his career, 
Mr. Blake's political conduct was open 
to censure. He Is particularly bitter !n 
rega'i^';to the course of Mr. Blake dur- 
ing the campaign of 1891 when "unre- 
stricted reciprot;Ity" was the Liberal 
policy. Old tlmer.s will recall the tre- 
mendous sensation that was caused 
when it became known a few days be- 
fore the election that Mr. Blake, thr; 
former leader of the Liberal paj-ty, hatl 
written a letter denouncin.g the party's 
trade policy. By tremendous effort on 
the part of the party leaders the text of 
the letter was not published until after 
the election, but Us tenor had becomr 
known, and It proved a very effective 
weapon in the hands of the Conser- 
vatives. Sir Richard describes Mr. 
Blake's course in respect to that letlei- 
as "treachery" and says: 

"My own opinion of his conduct Was ' 
sucli that I never spoke to him, nor hold 
any communication wUli him from that 
day, and I prefer to state the facts with- 
out further comment'." 

He also criticizes the manner in which 
Mr. Blake resigned the leadership of the 
party in 1887, asserting that "it \va.s 
not only a most discourteous act to all 
those who had acted with him, but it 
was calculated to paralyze their ttctlons 
In every way." Further on, Sir Richard 
says that "Mr. Blake, with all his abil- 
ity, and it was very great in some ilireo- 
tions, often behaved like a spoilt child. 
He lacked two essential qualities for a 
leader of a party, particularly a i^arty 
in opposition. He had neither the bull- 
dog courag-c to fight an uphill battle to 
the end, nor had lie that sense of loyalty 
to his party which has redeemed many 
smaller and In some respects wofso men 
than he was. He had not been a loyal 
colleague of Mr. Mackenzie and he Was 
not a loyal leader to his supporters." 

His references to the late Alexander 
Mackenzie are more charitable. He ad- 
mits that he had differences of opinion 
with his chief, but asserts that not ono 
angry word ever passed between them. 
His chief point of criticism of Maclten- 
zle is that "playing politics" was foreign 
to him and that "he worked fourteen 
hours a day in the routine of his de- 
partment, serving his country, but did 
nothing to organize the Liberal party." 
He also refused to accept Sir Richard's 
advice and recommend Sir John A. Mao- 
donald for an imperial appointment, 
which is news of the first order, never 
Iiavlng been made public before. It 
might he interesting to conjecture what 
would have happened had such an offer 
been made to Sir John. There Were 
times In the days when he was in oppo- 
sition when he would havp been glad to 
accept such a posltlop, the days when 
lift was in povertj', and when the 
leaders of his party were In a slighting 
frame of mind. But the offer was not 
made, and Sir John went back to stay 
in office until his death. 

As to Sir Wilfrid Laurler, Sir Richard 
l.<< more careful. It is true that his 
reference to the ex-promler deals With 
the period prior to 1S96, and that later 
events might have changed his views, 
but his reference to the failure of Sir 
Wilfrid to win the oonfldonce of Ontar- 
io Is especially valuable in view of the 
tremendous rebuff which that province 
gave him ymr. Laurler Is de- 
scribed as 'patient snd painstakinir" and 
"poBsensInK iho not Ineonalderabln 
Bdvnnfagr> for n. IrudiT of havlnc no

thnn most to d«>vo!o hl» whole energy to

has already arisen on tho subject Of 
naval defence. Rarely, If. ever, .In our 
lilstory, has an announcement been 
awaited so eagerly as that which Mr. 
Borden will lay before the House, of 
Commons in the course of the next 
few days. The Intereat. which has been 
evoked Is one of the healthiest ear- 
marks of our growth to greatness. 
The people may be divided In opinion 
on the question of methods, but we be- 
lieve that they will be willing to be 
guided by a programme which Is 
based on information furnished by the 
Admiralty. As we have said, by-elec- 
tions show that the faith of the people 
in the present administration Is grow- 
ing stronger, and there Is. little doubt 
that Mr. Borden will haVe overwhelm- 
ing support in whatever he will pro- 
pose should be done In the matter of 
Imperial defence.

We .suppose tliat everyone is In favor 
of some .sort of recognition of Canoda in 
the councils of the Empire. The other 
self-governing dominions ought also to 
be so recognized. The difficulty to bo 
overcome is n practical one, Viut It ought 
not to be insurmountable. All that Is 
necessary Is to ascertain just what each 
party to the arrangement would like to 
have and then to adjust their various 
Ideas to each other. As yet no one has 
proceeded further with the presentation 
of the case than cwmere general state- 
ment, and, apart altogether, from the 
wisdom of bringing up such a question 
by what is tantamount to a vole of want 
of confidence, we are imuble to see what 
good Is to l)e accomplished by so doing. 
Any resolution on .such a question which 
the House could adniU on the motion of 
n private member, would be very little 
more tlian a mere academic ixpres^don 
of opinion. To couple It with a declara- 
tion making such recognition an indl.s- 
pensable condition of a contribution to 
the naval defence of the Kmpire seems to 
us to be an Indefensible course. If Mr. 
Borden is able to tell Parliament that 
such a recognition will be forthcoming 
as soon as details can be arranged, wo 
shall nil be gratified; but to put forward 
the Idea that It be forthcoming be- 
fore Canada contributes to imperial de- 
ffincc looks very much like a mere luib- 

Canada cither owes a duty to the Km- 
pire or she does not. The issue in clear- 
cut. To say that she shall lUscharge 
that duty provided she Is given in re- 
turn representation on an imperial coun- 
cil seema to us to exhibit a very poor 
appreciation of it. Australia, New Zea-

pf their duty In an unconditional man-

When we speak of friendly relations, 
we do not employ the term in a diplo- 
matic ' sense. Diplomatically the rela- 
tions between two countries may be 
everything that can be desljiid. while on 
both: sides there may bC antagonistic 
popular feeling.,; In these days, and on 
this ; continent, this feeling is exceed- 
ingly unlikely to result in war, but it 
is almost sure to create frictions, to 
lead to irritation, to Incite retaliatory 
legislation, to stir up senseless antago- 
nisms, to Interfere wltli the mutual 

trust and confidence that ought to between two peoples sharing a 
continent between them. 

There Is nothing In the most friendly 
relations that, can exlflt between Canada 
and the United States at all Incom- 
patible with the place Canada occu- 
pies and will continue to occupy in the 
British Empire. Any Ill-will that exists, 
ond there Is much of it, has arisen 
out of a species of provincial bump- 
tiousness from which many of even the 
more prominent public men In the re- 
public arc not wholly free. The old 
practice of "twisting the lion's tall" 
has been abandoned, and has been re- 
placed by a species of offensive self- 
sufficiency, which Is fruitful of irri- 
tation. When this trait Is exhibited 
at the expense of Canada., It is very 
likely to arouse a feeling of anger and

principles which ought to guide Con- 
gress In dealing with this difficult sub- 

First— That it should not cause the 
wjige scale of Anierlcan Avorklng men to 
,ib9 ,d.epije.sf(?d by foreign comp.c^itlon. 
' Second — That the burden of tariff 
taxes should, be borne by the luxuries 
rather than the necessaries of life. 

Third — That the kind of protection 
that creates monopolies should be en- 
tirely done away with. 

Fourth— That reciprocity treaties 
should be negotiated whereyer such 
treaties will .stimulate commerce and 
lower tho cost of living. 

Fifth that the American . merchant 
marine shall be restored to Its former 
Iniportancc and power by a system Of 
preferential duties. 

How far these views are those ex- 
pressed by the tnehibera of Congress who 
have been Interviewed. The .Journal does 
not say, although It closes Its reference 
to them by oljservTHg that It "is good

magjfM^pf^V'i#P^^^B of the fine f le«i 
whic^^ipllppiblcd in the Hudson a few 
weeks ago as oonsisting of "grey, old 
fighters." This is very much of a poet- 
ical exaggeration, although the term 
was applied in cold prose. The ships 
were grey but they Were far from being 
old, for In fact most of them are among 
the latest triumphs In naval architect- 
ure. They were potential fighters, no 
doubt; but most of theni haVe yet to 
discharge a gun against an enemy. The 
latter remark is true Of the very great 
majority of all the war vessels afloat, 
and long may It contintic to be so. 



Without having at hnnd a copy of 
•Sir Itlchard Cartwrlght's Memoirs, we 
arc only In a position to speak of them 
from the reviews printed In the eastern 
papers. He certainly deals with the 
publlo men of Canada without gloves; 
but, however, much any one may dls- I 
agree with lilm or doubt tho expediency | 
of publishing what he has written. It j 
must be borne In mind that he expected | 
the book to appear durlm,- his lifetime, 
and must tiieroforc have been prepared 
to meet his critics. Possibly if he 
could have anticipated that he would 1> • 
tak' n awny before his book wos on sale, 
he would not have printed it. 

Sir KIchard, If we may judge from 
the rather copious extracts from the 
Memoirs that have been reprinted In 
the papers, has not very much that .'.s 
good to say about any one. Just what 
blstorlcnl value will be attaclicd to his 

The decision of the Inter-Stato Com- 
merce Commission, if ."uatalned by the 
Court of Appeals, may have a very far- 
reaching effect. The details of the 
case. In which the decision has been 
given, were publiBhed in our marine 
news yesterday; the substance of the 
ruling of the Commission is that It 
has jurisdiction over Canadian 

ships entering Bkagway, no matter 
to what point in the interior their 
cargoes may be billed. This means 
that goods may not be shlppeo 
from Victoria to r>«wson, both Can- 
adian points, without the steamships 
carrying them under the control of a 
foreign Jurls<llctton as to rate.t. ■^ The 
reason of this Is that Skagway and the 
White Pass ami Yukon Itnllway, as far 
as the Summit, are In fnlted States 

Pending tlie derl.slon of the Appellate 
Court in this point. It cannot be aalil 
to be dednltely settled; but If , It is 
held to be good law, it would seem to 
extend far enouRli to bring' every for- 
eign vessel enterln.v: a I'nited States 
port, no matter where, under the juris- 
dli'Uon of the commission. While the 
l.i.oue remains undetermined It may bo 
preinaturo t.i express any opinion as to 
Its effect upon the course of commerce, 
but, as at present advlned. we think It 
likely to be very advantngeous to Can- 
adian ports. 

A contcnnporary asks that the manu- . 

faotureatul sale of revolvers shall be 
prohibited by law. It says that tho 
weapon is of no real value either In 
peace or w.-ir. ami that iiinri: than half 
the murders committed are due to the 
fact that the murderer had a revolver. 
The only possible use fnr a revolver 1;; 
as a defence against another perrton 
who has ono. The logic of thKs reason- 
ing secm.s conclusive. Moreover, the 
pos.-'esslon of a revolver by a rlght- 
mlndcd person is more often tlian other- 
wise a source of danger to hhii when 
he is confronted by a criminal arniod 
with one. Banish the revolver! 

Mrs. Ada Droulllard, of Fifth Avenue, 
New York, has achieved fame by appear- 
ing in public with a fur coat of Ru.«si;ni 
Sables costing |35,(iOO. It took an ex- 
pert two and a half months to select 
tlir skins, and nlloi,'ethor a year was 
necessary to make the garment. The 
lady's sister-ln-lnw had formerly hold 
tfie American blue ribbon In furs by 
wearing a $20,000 salilc coat, which Was 
stolen from under her eyes as it lay be- 
side her In a box at the oper;\. If there 
is any line of extravagance In dns;-. 
that seems Ju.«»tlflnble It is that wliich

as the readers of these various items

were possible to get at your readers' 
favorite subjects, you would discover 
that the sporting columns have as many 
adherents as any other matters dealt 
with, especially the morning after Sal- 
*mbn'8 sweepstakes arc drawn. Whilst 
cricket Is the only game 1 know any- 
thing about. I am satisfied manly sports 
are the real quill to make men and 
should be encouraged. I have had box- 
ing, swimming and boat pulling lessons. 
a three years' drill with the militia in 
my young days. I have seen the time 
when knowledge in these matters would 
have been of great value. Referring to 
boxing, the chances are the other fel- 
low's nose would have been pulled. Had 
I any knowledge of swimming I havo 
one life in my mind I could have saved. 
In boat pulling we never know the 
moment when that knowledge may 
como In hondy and drilling with tho 
militia a couple of nights a week with 
a fortnight's camping in the summer 
will work wonders. I hope the parents 
ot boys who are big enough will encour- 
age them to join the scouts, eventually 
the militia, and by the time they are 21 
wc shall have a generation of young 
men whom fatherfl and mothers as well 
as tho city will be proud of.

very much, as manly sports, scouting

What's the matter with the hens? A market reiiort of b week ago 
said the price of eggs was seventy cents 
a dozen. This calls for some explana- 
tion. T.t is a niattrr of surprUe that in 
the course of the Achate on the Address 
some ardent Liberal did not a.'sk ^Ir. 
Bord?n for an explanation. It Is all very 
well to talk about the German menace, 
the greed of the cement magnates and 
little things like that; but why do not 
our statesmen grapple with a real tiucs- 
tlon? The meek and lowly hen wolks 
placidly around her yard and refuses to 
lay eggs. If she only acted that way In 
Victoria we might try to explain It 
awny, but as she Is doing the same thing 
from Halifax to Dawson and from Ta- 
busintac to Nltlhat. It Is time we knew 
ths reason why.

Xoad Ze In Operation 

Messrs. H. R. MacMIIIan and R. E. Bene- 
dict of the provincial forests service are In 
Vancouver today, where they have been 
asked to appear before the Dominion Rail- 
way Commission to give evidence as to the 
dispute which has arisen between Kelowna 
Irrigation Interests and the Kettle River 
Valley Railway Company. Tho situation 
appearn to be that If any fire were to occur 
along the watersheds to be traversed by the 
right-of-way, the deMruetlon of the bush 
would result In tho ruin of the entire Irriga- 
tion system of the district, l^or this rcHMon 
It Is highly Important that adequate steps 
be taken to prevent fire. 

The irrigation interests are asking that 
the railway be compelled to use oil as fuel, 
but It Is expected that a compromise will 
be resphed by the establishing of a compre- 
hensive system of patrol. One of the points 
for the commission to consider will b« as to 
who should bear the cost of such patrol — 
whether it should fall • entirely upon the 
railway or entirely upon the Irrigation Inter- 
ssta, or should be met by Joint levy. 

Messrs. MacMiilan and Benedict are not 
concerned lif this question of who Is to foot 
the bill, but will Simply confine thomaelves 
to expressions of expert opinion as to what 
measures are necessary to assurn iha safety 
of the foreets atong the watersheds.

vious that Instead of over-estimatlngr 
the enthusiasm of the ward adherents 
to the Conservative -cause the commit- 
tee had under-estimated it in not pro- 
vidiiifr for a more commodious meet- 
ing: place. Despite the petty discom- 
forts of such a situation, however, the 
audience evinced the utmost enthus- 
iasm. The .speeches wei» brier ana 
pointed, and the vocal and other inter- 
ludes proved extremely divertinR. 
Judged by any standard the gathering 
was an unqualified siiccess, and if the 
other ward.s of the city aspire to eclipse 
they will have to e.^erclse themsel\-«s 
to a consiilerable degree. 

Standlufr of B. 0. 

Mr. H. V. W. Behnsen, M.P.P., wa.s 
the first speal<er of the eveninR-. Tie 
devoted his remaiks entirely to an ex- 
position of the Inielncss policy of tne 
Conservative administration In the 
province during the past number of 
years. He traced the history of the 
province from the time Sir Richard 
McBride a.^sumcd the reins of gov- 
ernment down to the present time. 
I-Vom a purely business or commercial 
point of view he explained that until 
the advent of Sir Richard Mci?ride the 
province had no history at all. It 
practically unknown in the world of 
commerce, and In the world of credit 
it was not known for ai^iy„,pqoo, iTiat 
condition of things took some" time to 
efface, hut he pointed out to them that 
today it nas so effectively effocecl that 
It was difficult to Imagine that It ever 
existed. Today B. C. stood high In the 
world of commerce. It had attracted 
the attention of the wealthiest cap- 
itall.'?ts In the world, and as a result 
of their faith in the country and the 
administration at the head of it (hey 
had Invested their money. 

What had the opposition to set up 
against a policy that ,iud lirought th<« 
province from obscurity to fame. Not?i- 
Ing at all save a string of witless 
criticisms. They did not even pretend 
seriously to have a policy. They merely 
contented themselves with mlsrejire- 
senting the policy of the government 
and endeavoring to pull the wool over 
the eyes of the people who were cred- 
ible enough to give a hciring. 
Strength of Orgranliatioa 

Mr. Leonard Tait followed with a 
strong exhortation to keep on organ- 
izing. It was pleasing to him to sec 
such a large number present and to 
know that it meant they were still 
actively engaged even during times of 
peace. Referring to the Songhecs Re- 
serve question he pointed out that 
while there admittedly had been delay 
there was no cause for romplalnt as 
the premier would undoubtedly carry 
hl.<i Kchenie to an issue. He-'drew an 
inuiginatlvo picture of the union ter- 
minal on the reserve, adjacent to the 
heart of the city, and stated that when 
It was realized, as It would be, it 
would be the means of developing the 
city In the direction of Victoria West, 
where the Interests of Ward 1 Consor- 
\atlvcs mostly lay. He also predicted 
that the people in that section of the 
lity would have their dream of direct 
connection with thfi city fulfilled 
through the comprehensive policy of 
the premier. 

Mr. H. B. Thomson oponed his re- 
marks by referring to the report that 
the Sir John Jackson engineering firm 
had abandoned the contract awarded 
to them to build the breakwater at 
Victoria harbor. He was in a position 
to give the statement emphatic denial, 
which he did by reading a telegram 
from Mr. Albert Brooks, general man- 
ager of the firm, to the following 
effect: "Absohitely no foundation for 
the rumor that we will not go on with 
contract." That was more than proof 
enough, commented the speaker. No 
one ever really believed that the con- 
tract would be abandoned, but at the 
same lime it was well to have such a 
denial ready to refute further allega- 
tions along the same line. Why should 
the Sir John Jackson firm abandon 
the contract at this Juncture? It was 
claimed that they were doing so be- 
cause of submitting too low a bid. 
What sort of a reason was that to al- 
lege agralnst a firm of the standing of 
the orte undertaking their contract? It 
wan perfectly true that their bid wa« 
greatly below that of the next lowest. 
and considerably below the govern- 
ment, but he thought that when the 
flrni signed up 'to undertake the work 
It would not be like them to abandon 

VroaC off W«Mter. 

Mr. Tbomion then turned bis atten- 
tion to Ottawa affalra. and that 
brought htm to a consideration of th« 
naval attbatldn. "I feel proud," he 
aald. "and I think you f««l proud i^lth

cdt*l»iry^tie' voiced the sentlmehta' of 
the 'people of the province;' ancl partic- 
ularly' hfsbWn constituents, the people 
of' victoria!. More than that; he be- 
lieved that they were the sentiments 
of 'all the right-thinking people of 
Canada." But what was the situation 
on the Pacific Coast? They had a 
country of great wealth absolutely un- 
protected, and he thought It was only 
reasonable to suppose that other coun- 
tries -not so well proN'ided materluUx-, 
but infinitely better provided fOr war. 
should cast longing eyes In their direc- 
tion. He believed, with his chief, that 
a naval unit for the Pacific Coast was 
Ihe onlv solution of that difficulty, and 
he thought they should go on agliatlng 
for it until the.v got it. (.Applause.) 

Speaking briefly of the proseprity of 
the DomlniOHv he pointed out that In 
18S2, with a r>opulallon of nearly fifty 
millions, the United States produced 
no more than was produced by Canada 
last year, when the census showed her 
population to be between eight and 
nine million. Ho thought these figures 
were -a revelation of the latent pos- 
sibilities In Canada. Vf Canada could 
produce as much with eight million as 
the LTjilted States could with fifty mil- 
lion, what might they not expect In 
the future? Tt behoved every one of 
(hem to keep these facts In mind, and, 
in their own siiuill wa.v, contribute to 
lbs .general result, which, he predicted, 
would inovitabl}' be a glorlou.s one for 

Songhess Ssssrve. 

Mr. ^"\^ Blakemore, who. w.i.s the rmly 
other speaker, devoted .a portion of his 
remarks to a discussion of the diffi- 
culties attending the settlement of the 
Songhees reserve. After stating that 
Sir Richard McBride had not wasted 
a moment in trying to .bring about a 
settlement of the question that would 
be agreeable to all parties, he said that 
the premier had all along Insisted that 
the terminal to be located im the re- 
serve must be a union one, affording 
facilities for all the great ralUvay 
lines coming into the city. This atti- 
tude had beefi dictated by the lack of 
other accommodation of a suitable 
character. It was, naturally ahd right- 
l.v, desired to have the transportation 
and terminal facilities of the city con- 
gregated together in one vast unity, in- 
stead of scattered about the city, de- 
fying location or disturbing ametjlt.v. 

"I do not think," he proceeded, "that 
It is any .secret to say that Sir Rich- 
ard failed to bring about the settle- 
ment lio h-id set his heart upon prior 
to his departure for Ottawa recently, 
hut, upon arriving In Ottawa on en- 
tirely different business, he decided, as 
a last resort, to go on to Montreal, and 
there' he interviewed the chief of the 
r*. P. R,, and brought to a successful 
consummation the lengthy tangle of 
interests that has been agitating the 
citizens of A'lctorla for so long. I do 
not think, therefore, that Conserva- 
tives should join in the crltlcl.«m In- 
dulged In by the political opponents 
of 'the go\-ernmpnt, because it had' been 
clearly proved that Sir Richard and 
his government have all along been 
striving to bring the problem to a 
satisfactory solution, not merely satis- 
factory to the railway companies, but 
satisfactory to the citlxens and to the 
government of the province." 

Speaking of the opening of the Do- 
minion parliament ho referred to tl.e 
fact that they were now waiting for 
the announcement of the government's 
naval policy: and in that connection hf 
stated that a.s loyal Canadians and 
British subjects they were heartily in 
fnvor of tl.e policy enunciated by Sir 
Richard McBride. which was that the 
government of the country could not go 
too far to satisfy Britl.'ih Coliimbli. 

irssd of Paolfto n««t. 

"But there are two things Impend- 
ing 111 connection with the naval situa- 
tion. The one has regard to what Is to 
bp done by this country to assist Great 
Britain In the present emerjrency and 
the other has regard to what is to 
be done In the line of a permanent 
naval policy for Canada. The first 
proposition offers no difficulty at all. 
Conservatives are agreed to a man that 
whatever contribution Is dee-med neces- 
sary by th* government of the country 
will be most freely «iven. With regard 
to the other proposition, it O not cer- 
tain fhat VLj. Borden will enunciate any 
policy just yet. But whether he does 
or not, there is one aspect of It that 
the people of this country cannot mis- 
take, and that Is that in any scheme of 
naval defence In which Canada will be 
called upon to participate, there must 
be provision for the creation of a fleet 
unit for the Pacific coast. (ABPUu;t».)

Persons who have private bills which

ial legLslature ■ at its rtext "session 
are warned that the session ' opens 
January 16, and notice of any private 
legislation must appear in {he official

The legislature as a rule is not 
strict in the enforcement of the six 
weeks' notice, but usually contents it- 
self with charging double fees when- 
ever this regulation Is Infringed. The 
city of Vancouver is one of the most 
notable sinners In this respect and it 
Is a regular annual practice for the 
legislature to refuse to remit the dou- 
ble fee which the oori>aration has to 
pay on account of Its remissness. 

Xotlce is given by Mr. F. A. McDlar-

much to buy and so little to buy with. 
So she waits and waits till the last

The small amounts that rnljfht have 
brought a glow of happinesSi to tly; 
hearts of loved ones and stillsfled real

who should have been remembered, are

Cancer Bunetln 

Who Is Ihon in these days that, hav- 
ing pap.-iid middle age. ,l*as not a dread 
of cancer? Women, who have borne 
many sorrows, tremble when in the 
days in which they might have looked 
fjrwaru to comfort and ease, they (Ind 
them.selvos attacked by this teniblo 
dl.'ieasc. How mucli quiet heroism has 
been displayed by such sufferers, only 
near relatives and nurses know. While 
tlie cause of Oils scourge has baffled 
students something Is being learned by 
Investi^'ators and they are ready tn 
place Ihl.s knowledge at the dl.sposal of 
humanity. The Chicaso Medical boci-ty 
which is working with a committee of 
tile congress of surgeons, which met 
recently in New York, ha.<? Issued the 
following bulletin. The to con- 
tciil tile heginnlng.s of this disease is 
very strf^ng among women. That this 
la fooiisli and often fatal Is tho opinion 
of who have Issued the bulletin 
of which the following arc the chief 

"Cancer in lln' hrginniru; 1p a local 

"No cure for cancer has l}.een dis-

Egufil Watres 

Most women agree that men and wo- 
men who do the fame work should be 
paid alike. This principle has been 
adopted by tlie educational authorities 
i>r the city of New York, but the re- 
sult has not been sallRfaetbry. When 
men were compelled to work for wages 
with whlcli women teachers were satis- 
fled, they found they could not live as 
persons in tlielr position should. The 
conseguence has been that the niunber 
of men teachers has decreased rapidly 
and. unless steps are talcen to prevent 
It the WJrk of Instruction will soon be 
altogether In the han<ls of women. No 
one thinks that this is a d''sirable stat " 
of affairs. Schools no more than homes 
can bo beat conducted by women alone. 
In most cities this matter Is regulated 
hy placing men In the best paid posi- 
tions. The New York board of educa- 
tion lias not adopted what may be look- 
ed upon as an expedient of doubtful 
honesty. To secure th« very best edu- 
cation flor men and women of the 
future in far more Important thon any 
theory of equal pay for equal work. 
Where the task to be acconi]dlshed Is 
purely mechanical, the principle Is 
-«mind. But no one can measure in- 
fluence. The result on a future gen- 
eration of spending the Wholm of school 
life under the eor^trol and Inftuence of 
women alone will be luoked forward to 
wtui aajRtoty. »•» wly by i^||»|if^ i»|^|

an ocupatlori for a married man a great 
step to remedy this evil would bo ialctm. 
In Canadian cities the high salarttts of- 
fered have been effectual in retaining 
the services of married men as princi- 
pals and as Instructors in high school.s. 
In the rural districts the tendency Is 
increasing to employ young girls uloiie, 
as women of experience are attracted to 
the towns. A late number of The Crafts- 
man contains a letter whlcii suggOsts u 
remedy. A tcnciier. who was married 
and tlic father of a family, secured n 
small farm near his school. In the out- 
door work he found the exercise and 
diversion he needed, while in making ti 
home Ills wife was contented and hapiiy. 
This is wiiat he says after four years" 
experience In living on a farm and 
teaching the neigliborlng school: 

"My wife ana I are more than glad 
we made llic change when we did for 
now our children can grow up strong Jn 
body because they cat fresh, wholesome 
food; they have a chance to develop nor- 
mally because they are tree from the 
over-stimulation of tho city; they can 
Uarn to know and love the beautiful, 
simple things of life because they ure 
not bound by the artificial standards cur- 
rent in the average city.or town. Then 
my wife .loves tlie country, too, and wo 
have room enough to turn around in, 
fresh air to breathe, time enough to 
tlilnk witli and brains rested enough to 
think with. As for me, well, I just love 
the country more and more and the 
work J do In tlie open air is making me 
so strong and hearty that I believe 1 
shall be here to enjoy life for many 
years more than I could have expected if 
I had remained In town." 

This Is tlie tenclier's view. Can we 
doubt that the effect on the rural com- 
munity of the presence among Its peo- 
ple of a cultured man whoso interests 
were Identical with their own and xvlio 
would give tiie cliiidren the same views 
of life lie lield himself would be elevat- 
ing and refining? Are there among us 
men of high attainments who would 
be content to labor f<jr a modest -com- 
pptcnce with the consciousness of liav- 
ing lived a life of usefulness? It will 
only be in sucli a case that a home pro- 
vided for the rural district school 
teacher will help to give permanence to 
the work of the schoolmaster.

Wolgast seemingly wa.s lacking 3n 
condition. In the round before the 
finish his legs were so heavy he could 
hardly lift his feet from the mat, While 
Ritchie, fresh and breathing easily, 
danced around ills pufi!ing adversary 
and poked him with his straight lefts. 
Wolgast says that he did not Intend 
to foul Ritchie and that he thinks It is 
a poor way to win a championship. "I 
did not hear Griffin caution me and I 
do not believe I struck a foul blow," he 
•laid after the fight. "Ritchie was 
rough, and when I first got in trouble 
In the sixteenth it was from him throw- 
ing me against the ropes, instead of 
hitting me. T would fight him again 

Ritchie protested that he was fouled, 
but said that he was strong and could' 
have finished Wolgast in another round. 
The Vew Champion 
The new champion, known to the 
sporting world as Willie Ritchie, Was 
reared In San Francisco as Gary Steffon. 
He la twenty-one years old. The arena 
was crowded to the guards, several 
thousand people being turned away at 
the gates. James Coffroth, the pro- 
moter, estimates that there were |40,000 
in the house. 

Konnd One 

Ritchie, with the men Jlghtlng closa, 
scored seveial times to th.'. head and 
face before the ch2mpion->-essaycd the 
offensive. They mixed fiercely In a 
neutral corner and Ritchie scored first 
blood as the result of a succession of 
ahlrt-arm blows to the mouth. Wol- 
gast snp-t blood as he took his seat 
Ritchie's round. 

Bound Two 

Wolgast opened the round with a 
rush, breathing heavilj'. The champion 
kept well under cover and after delug- 
ing Ritchie with several lefts and 
rights to the Jaw, drove two wicked 
rights to the jaw and a left uppercut 
over the heart. Ritchie broke ground 
and looked worried. Wolgast, still 
spitting blood, drove two telling lefts 
to the stomach. The rorund ended with 
desperate In-ilghtlng. Wolgast's by a 

Bonad Three 

Wolgaat drove two wicked rlghta to 
the atomach and a right to the mouth,

Both flghter.s seetned Stronger and 
shoaildor-to-shoulder they lexchanged 
right uppercuts to the jaw, the cham- 
pion's punches having by far the great- 
er power behind them. Ritchie drove 
the champion against the ropes, land-

Against Fifteen Composed 
Almost Entirely of Victoria's 

LO.S AN'GKL,ES, Cal., Nov. 28.— Joe 
.Mandot, the pride of tho South, went 
down to defeat today before the tiger- 
ish onslaughts of Joe Rivers, of ]_.oh 
.\ngele.«i, over whom he had won an 
easy decision on Labor day. 

It wa.i a clean-cut victory for the 
.Mexican, who showed a remarkable 
reversal of form, exhibiting more speed 
and cleverness than heretofore in his 
career. It was nearly dark and tho 
clectilc lights over the ring had been 
lighted when Referee Eyton hoisted 
num^Maia in token of victory at the 
ol(iJ||;:;;|!i?^tlie twentieth round, but it 
was a needless foi-mallty as only one 
decision was possible. It was a fast 
and gruelling dght frotti «tart to flniah.

In lieu of the Victoria Welsh-Law 
Students Barnard Cup League match 
wliich lias been postponed, the Victoria 
Rugby Union has arranged a match be- 
tween a Victoria! team, to be known as 
the Colors, and the Welsh club for this 
Saturday. It will be played at the Uni- 
versity School grounds. Mount Tolmie, 
starting at three o'clock. Mr. W. C. 
Moresby will referee. 

The Welsh club's opponents will prac- 
tically be the city representatives and 
tho contest will not only be good prac- 
tice for the "reps," but will be a fine 
test of the ability of the Welshmen. 

The Oak Bay grounds are taken up by 
the high school students, who are play- 
ing Vancouver Rugby for the Thompson 
Cup, and girls' hockey, on .Saturday 

The reason of the postponement of 
the Barnard Cup matcla Is that the 
J. B. A. A. team, which goes to Van- 
couver to meet McGlll in a return match 
is taking a number of the Law Students' 
best players. 

At last night's meeting of the Rugby 
union the following were selected as the 
Colors' line-up: Fullback, Johnson; 
three-quarters, Martin, Galllher, (i. C. 
Grant and D. M. Grant; halves, Morton 
and Champaln; forwards, G. Ileinekey, 
8. Gillespie, G.^fllllgan, B. Scott, J. 
Houston, Redger, Pcrnhcrton and Chalk. 
Reserves: Three-quarters, Boggs and 
Dickson; halves, Mclnnes; forwards, 
Brynjolfsen, Montelth and Colllsson. 

Victoria Welsh — Fullback, C. Grif- 
fiths; three-quarters, H. B. Jones, Dal 
Thomas (captain), Sid Hendra, H. O. 
Forester; halves. J. Bailey and A. Hill; 
forwards, H. Watkins, II. Edwards, H. 
Leason, Dai Davies, H. H. Boyde, 8. 
Honeychurch, H. Lomas and O. Grant. 
Reserves: Three-quarter, Richmond; for- 
wards, Wlikle and Richards. 
Coopar-Xelth Tangle 

Rugby players are now beginning to 
talk of the annual matches with Stan- 
ford and CallfO'-nia, and in this connec- 
tion a tangle has developed which may 
block the contests. Vancouver holds the 
Cooper-K^lth Cup and, following the 
u.sual procedure, the champion California 
team would come up and play for It. 
But there is no champion California 
team, the annual battle In the aouth 
having resulted In a draw. 

As a moans to got around this diffi- 
culty Vancouver has proposed that the 
Callfornlana send an all-star team horth 
and It is poBsblei that this proposal may 
be adopted, although obviously the host 
way out of the difficulty would be for 
the two southern teams to do as has 
been advocated by the newspapers In 
San Franclaco and pla/ off the tie. 

Then the winner could play Vancou- 
ver, and in that case It Is likely that the 
Victoria Union would bring the other 
team north for a series of matches.

different boxer from the boy who was 
so hopelessly outclassed by the New Or- 
leans' lightweight on Labor day. He 
fought a cool and heady battle and, In- 
stead of covering on attacks of the 
Southerner, he found the latter in his 
own way. Time after time he beat 
Mandot "to It" with left swings .and

lefts to the body with an occasional 
uppercut. a method of offensive fight- 
ing against which Mandot's science 
was of little avail. Several times the 
referee was forced to pry th.em apart 
and once Rivers hit the referee in 
breaking away. Neither of the boys 
were badly marked.'

former president of the Philadelphia 
National League baseball club, is for- 
ever excluded from participation In the

Thl.s was the decision of the mag- 
nates of the league after six hours' 
consideration yesterday of tho charges 
that Fogel had made statements re-

club owners found the former Philadel- 
phia club president guilty on five and 
dl.smis.sed the other two, relating to 
Ijrivileged communications. 

Th© finding of the league was: 

"Therefore, be It resolved:

NEW YORK, Nov. 28.— Leach Cross 
outpolntod Battling Nelson In a ten- 
round bout here today. Nelson took a 
great deal of punishment, but was 
forcing the fighting at the finish. 

Cross weighed 1.18 pounds at the 
ringside, and Nelson was four ounces 
heavier. Cross started In with left 
Jabo to the face and right and left 
hooks to the head. The "Battler" was 
outclassed, hut managed to land hard 
on the .law with right and left, and 
had Cross crouching at the end of the 
first round. 

Cross had the better of the second, 
third and fourth rounds, and In the 
seventh round Nelson waa forcing 
Cross all over the ring, but taking ter- 
rible punishment. 

Nelson's willingness agaln.-jt sure de- 
feat was remarkable, and he actually 
made Croa^ back up, forcing him 
from corner to corner until the final 
bell. It was a wonderful showing on 
Nelaon'a part, and Cross did Aot gain 
any Laurels by outpointing him. 

The Northwestern I^eague magnates 
are already engaged in the business of 
schedule-making for 1913. Walter Mc- 
Credie. of Portland, has drawn up a 
schedule and forwarded a copy to L. A. 
Wattelet, manager of the Victoria club, 
for criticism. 

It was criticised, too, although there 
Is really nothing wrong with It cxcapt 
the fact that It takes the Bees over to 
the American side on Canadian holiday 
dates, and has a decided tendency to 
favor the Portland Pippins. 

Mr. Wattelet Is going after nine full 
weeks this season, and will fight any 
attempt to renew the split series sche- 
dule. Nine weeks of ball here Is not 
too much, conaidering that Seattle and 
Vancouver get fourteen or fifteen.

"How ftvr la lt?" 
^How Is the water?" . ' 
" ff^f/'PrlPlwai were th«J only questions that 
Lipton asked before he joined in the en* 
thuatasm of the supgestlon. 
"But I must have a steamer to follow 

movlh(;^^|ppn|ip|pWlftly OS the race 

"You'll have that steamer, and every 
yncht In the race shall have a steamer 
to follow hor," was tlio quick response 
of the man front the Islands. 

All that la necessary to complete the 
])lcti:re is to recollect that steamers 
nowadays liavo wireless; and that the 
world will read first each mornlngr, ;n days of 1915, the story of the 
Kreatest International ocean race that 
has i!%'er been contested. 

No sooner had the plans been made 
than teleRranis and wireless niessafjea 
were sent hy the 'Frisco Chronicle to 
all, the great yacht clubs, announc- 
In the fact that Honolulu as well 
^ti» .6an Franel.S(-o would accept the 
clhanif?nge of the British yachtsman, 
and ■ Inviting them to join In the 
Krp,at event, that promises to hold 
the attention of all the world In 1915, as 
no other single contest In the realm of 
.sport, has ever (toCUfc^hcfore. 

When ColoneVt^npIp called on Sir 
'rhuiiuiSrr<giiM;;v.S|iiiiPi''''- 'yachtsman had 
little id|HMI^^||||^|liirport of the visit. 
Colonel jiSrtieii^iiilltie with John H. Soper, 
relii'i'd brlKadlor-general of the Honolulu 
National Guard. 

"Wo have yacht races at Honolulu," 
he told Sir Thomas, "and when I ko 
hack tliere I am polng to endeavor to get 
some of our i)eople together und buUd 
a boat to compete with you Jiere In 
19i5." ■■ '■ , 

'■'rh.T.t's fl'»^ia^^*»" "'"'•'* tlio comment 
or the Br 1 tliilJPpS^t •- ■.,"■■; 

"Why don't'ydu'issue a formal nccept- 
'■ ance of Sir Thomas' challenge," was 
I suggested to Colonel Parker. 

"1 want to wait until I get the othcru 
tcgctlier," he suld. "There's no doubt 
I but that they will do It, but they might 
think that 1 was taking too much on 
inyeelf If I didn't wait until I get back 
before, aicpptlng the challenge In the 
name of the Islands. 

"But I tell yon what I will do," h:' 
added, as the Interest in th%> conversa- 
tion proKressed, "I will give $20,000 my- 
.■^elf toward the fund for tli(> Hawaiian 

But that was only the way It began. 
Colonel Parker soon raised his own con- 
tribution to $25,000, and before long the 
wireless was sizzling the message 
through the air tliat will put the good 
men of Hawaii on their mettle. There 
will be .•something doing. That's a fore- 
gone conclu.slon. 

"And why not nnisli with a race from 
San Francisco bay to Honolulu harbor?" 
suggested the man from Hawaii. 

"How far Is It?" asked l>lpton. 

"Two thou.<(nnd and eighty-nine miles." 

"And how's tlio water?" 

"Smootli In pummer, with n good pall- 
ing breeze every day." 

"But I have a .vteamer to follow 
my yacht," said Hlr Thomas. 

"You'll have that steamer, and every 
yacht In the race shall have n steamer 
to follow her," answered Colonel Parker. 

Then a Hat of all the big yacht clubs 
was made, and The Chronicle wired 
the news of the big race that is to bo 
to each of them. 

It means line spo.-t; and. Incidentally, 
It means an attraction added for tho "X- 
position year, than which there could 
be none greater in the whole kingdom of 
sports. — .San Francisco Chronicle.

clever blocking on tho part of both men 
hroughl cheers from the crowd. Wol- 
gast then chopped nwny with right to

The new athletic society will be

In charge of Its. affairs. 

Basketball Is to be played here and

ca) Lutheran church, which has Just 
emerged from the hands of th« contrac- 
tors and will henceforth be dedicated 
to the work of tlie Lutheran cause in 

Occupying a prominent location on 
the corner of Princess avenue and

fice does credit arcliitecturally to Its 
surroundings, and will continue to do

not he without Intereat to refer briefly 
to the siiUent featur<i« Of th« Lutheran 
mdvfutMBt 111 J:he clts^ — ItJuB„flnly 
matter if «#iMilve yeara that the Ger- 
man elatnaBt to m0ll0ii^:i.:fiofiii^ m the 
chiirph. AV that tin** it was located 
at Spring Ridge, and prtor to their 
tenure of the building It belonged to 
the Icelandic settlement which was as- 
sociated with the Spring Kldge district 
from a much earlier time. When tlic 
Lutheran churchmen decided to take 
over the churcli they moved it to Mear 
street and continued to occupy it until 
the spring of tills year when it was 
recognized that to continue longer in 
It would retard the development of the 
cause through lack of sufficient ac- 
commodation for the Increasing con- 

Conferences were held with a view 
to arriving at a solution of the diffi- 
culty, and as tlie price of land was 
tlien, as it is now, greatly in the 
ascendent. It was deemed advisable to 
sell the property and build another and 
more commodious churcli ■clsewlicre. In 
casting about for a. site the one now 
occupied was selected as the most suit- 
able for the needs of the congregation 
and with very little delay the prop- 
erty was purchased and a contract wan ■ 
let shortly afterwards for the erec- 
tion of the churcli. the consecration of 
which takes i>lace on Sunday. To- 
gether with the church a parsonage 
has ben «reeted on the adjoining lot on 
Chambers strict. 

Znargetlc Fastor. 

The pastor Is a young man, Rev. 
Otto G. M. Gerblcb. He has been con- 
nected with the church for the last 
three years and has done a great deal 
toward realizing the gratifying condi- 
tion of things which exists today. 
Pracllonlly speaking this Is his first 
charge, for while he held a temporary 
])Osltlon after graduating from the 
Columbus Unlversltj', Ohio, he was 
never permanently associated with any 
churoh until he came to Victoria to 
ofTlciHte as pastor of the St. Paul's 
Lutheran. I'rlor to the coming of Mr. 
Gorblch there was a hiatus in the pas-' 
torate of something like two years, due 
f'l thf fact that the church was grow- 
ing at a greater rate than the nnlver- 
sitles could provide pastors for them. 
His immediate predecessor therefore 
was the Rev. Helneke. 

When his new church Is opened and 
everything is in working ordei again 
it in the Intention of Mr. Gerblch to 
Innovate a trifle with regard to music 
in the church. With the assistance of 
Mr. F. Parfltt as director he hopes to 
instal not only a choir of good voices 
but .-in orchestra of talent also. 

Forenoon and evening services will 
be held in the church on .Sunday. The 
flrpt will be in German by the Rev. O. 
T. Just ot Christ Church, Vancouver, 
with an Kngllsh reading by the Rev. 
Prof, .\rmin Paul Meyer, president ot 
the Pacific Lutheran Seminary, Olyni- 
pla, Washington : and the second will 
be in Engii.'ih by the Rev, Charles 
Rush, of the Kmanuel Lutheran 
church. Spokane, Washington, witli n 
(rernian reading by the pastor, Hev. 

Great lntere.<!t \b Iwlng taken In the 
opening of the new church by the 
members of the congregation and it Is 
exrected that the day of consecration 
will mark the beginning of a new and 
even more successful era in the history 
of the church in the city of Victoria. 



A. Hew Order Wtaloh Smi Juat Been

BKLOHADK, Nov. 28.— .A new order, 
that of "Dushnn the Mighty," has been 
formed by King Peter for the decora- 
tion of mi'n and officers who have dis- 
tinguished themselves In the war. It 
is named after the great Servian Czar, 
who succeeded In sub.iugatlng the 
greater part of the Balkan Peninsula. 
and on whose brief rule In Albania the 
Servian claims to Durazzo are nomin- 
ally founded. The name chosen for 
the new order Is, therefore, significant.

in the atrenb'th of the French aerial 
fleet Is to be made next year, a auni 
of $5,000,ouo liaving been set aside for 
tills r.urpose, aa compared with |4,000,- 
000 In the present year. It has not 
been the practice of the French mili- 
tary authorities to make spectacular 
exhibitions of their progress In aerial 
development, but enormous advances 
have, nevertheless, been made. 

Tlie establisment now provided for 
comprises no fewer than twenty dir- 
igibles and 382 aeroplanes. Of the 
latter, 342 scouting craft will be 
divided into thlrty-elglit escadrille.", 
each consisting of eight aeroplanes, 
with one as a reserve, or spare. Twenty- 
.scven of the squadrons will be field 
escadrllles, and elevefi fortress osca- 
drlUes, one stjuadron being allotted to 
each army headquarters, one to each 
army corps, and three aeroplanes to 
each cavalry division. It is further, 
stated that forty armed aeroplanes, or 
avio.ns de combat, will be added to the

Motor Car Renders Service — The 
keen anxiety of a motorman on an Es- 
ciulmalt car to get off on the exact 
minute as prescribed by the schedule 
as the starting time for the outward 
bound car resulted Iri the car leaving 
Government street at 11 o'clock last 
night minus the conductor. The latter 
was returning from tho company's 
ticket office across the road when the 
car started. The conductor made a 
valiant attempt to get aboard but he 
was was too late by a second. His 
shrill whistles and the fast sprint he 
made failed to retard the progress of 
the car which steadily forged ahead 
but the driver of a passing motor car 
eame to his aid and picking him up 
speeded after the street car Jiiat dis-

Sblpplngr Vnder China's riaff 

The Chinese goT«rnm«nt ha« aeveral 
ambitious plans under «(ay for the ex- 

Coals at Seattle, 

The steamer Auch'Cndole left Van- 
'■iouver early last night for Seattle to 
coal. After coaling she proceeds to 
Portland to take a cargo of lumber to 
Sydney, Auftralla. K. W. Jjeach, rep- 
resenting the American Trading Com- 
pany, 'id'ho liave chartered the steamer. 
Joined the boat In Vancouver on Wed- 

John Stewart, of Stark's Crossing:, 
Is the newly chosen president of the 
Nanainlo Farmers' Institute. 

wna i SH o r CBincga B Hipping ii n w. a 

transpacific being Included among the 
proposals. FojF the purpose of strength- 
ening the China Merchants' Steam Navl- 
gatlon Com pany agai nst the «»ippetl- 
tlon oit other lines. It ft undefsfooaTSSr 
the phltMse government proposes to 
eom« to :|]U asststanice -bfy the grant of 
a subsi'dy. isifficlent to feTrlhg' the an- 
nual dividend up to ten per cent should 
the. profits not be large enough. Ami 
alternative suggestion, now under obn- 
Blderatlon, Is that' the authorities at 
Pckin should help the company by plac- 
ing a higher tonnage tax on all ships 
flying foreign flags that are engaged 
in the coastal trade of China. More- 
over, special rights may also be given 
to it, such, for instance, as the exclu- 
sive right to transport coal from Chi-* 
nese mines and "tribute rice." In this 
way the company's business would be 
improved and extended. 

Another proposal which, according to 
all accounts. Is . meeting with a good 
deal of support Is that the government 
should advance a sum of money with- 
out Interest to the company under cer- 
tain conditions. The opening of the 
Panama canal. It Is pc^nted out, mufet 
have an Important effect on ocean 
freights, and should Justify at least one 
Chinese shipping company In carrying 
on trade through the waterway. To 
assist the China Merchantj-s' Company 
to do so, It Is suggested that four or 
six modern liners should be ordered 
from a British firm, one-fourth of the 
total coat to be paid when the contract 
Is dlgfled, one-tourth at the time of de- 
livery, and the balance by five yearly 
Installments. In this connection, th« 
first payment should be made by the 
government, and returned by the com- 
pany at the end of ten years, while 
the vessels would be at the di.sposal of 
the army and navy authorities when 
required for transportation pftrposes.

Za Business at ■ydnsy. 

Mr. John Baxter, formerly a purser 
on the Union 9. S. Company's bosts, 
who left Vancouver for Australia Isst 
spring. Is now engaged in the shipping 
business In Sydney. His father was 
for many years collector of customs 
for the port ot Sydney. 

H. M. S. Algerlne steamed f totn JBs- 
aulmalt yesterday morning on an .::«** 
tended cruise to the South Seas, which 
will Involve an absence from port ot 
185 days. For two years the Islands 
of the southern Pacific have not (been 
visited by a warship. Last yeai?! the 
Shearwater, which was to have made 
the calls; broke down oft the Meaclcan 
coast and, with her tallshaft gone, WM 
towed to San Francisco by H. M. S. 

Commander Brooker, In comrnand of 
the Algerlne, for many days before the 
departure of the sloop-of-war had been 
receiving on board parcels of clothing, 
books, furniture and various things for 
the residents of Pltcalrn Island to 
whom the visit of the Algerlne will 
be a red-letter day in their otherwise 
lonely existence. 

The Algerlne will proceed to Cali- 
fornia ports, calling at San Diego and 
Santa Barbara, where the residents 
usually entertain the visiting sailor- 
men, and will then proceed to Mexico. 
Guatamala and other Central American 
ports, calls being made at the Gala- 
pagos Islands and Cocos Island — scene 
of the search by many expeditions for 
the burled millions supposed to have 
been hidden there by the crew of the 
Nova Scotia hark Mary Dea which 
sailed away with statues of gold and 
sliver and other treasures from the 
cathedrals and mansions of Lima when 
Peru was warring with Chill. 
Scene of Tragedy. 

Galapagos Island was the scene of 
a tragedy a few years ago which cost 
the life of a Victorian. Mr. Jeffs, ot 
this city, was a member of the crew 
of the Norwegian bark Alexander, 
abandoned near there and wandered 
away from the other survivors. Search 
was made in vain for him by several 
warships. Hrltish and American, one 
of the cruisers being detached from 
Admiral Jt:v!in.s' fleet to search when 
the late admiral's suuadron cruised 
around the continent a few years ago. 

From Central America the Algerlne 
will voyaye to Chilian ports and after 
a call at Valraral.''o will start out into 
the Pacific to Chrl.stmas, Fanning. 
Washington, Penrhyn, Malvern, and 
other Isles. ' 

Will Visit Easter. 

One of the most interesting of the 
visits win be to lonely Kaster Isle, 
which lies 2300 miles from any shore, 
and here the landing party will prob- 
ably meet an expedlllon which went 
recently from Plymouth to seek to solve 
the greatest riddle of the Pacific — the 
orlcrln of thi» lost races who set up the 
.^lKantIc statues and built the stone 
temples which are .<ieen on varimi.f 
parts of the Island. 

The sloop-of-war Is expected back at 
Escjuimalt ^bout the middle of May. 
H. M. 9,. Shearwater, which has been 
recommlssloned at Ksciuimalt, a now 
complement of 78 officers and men 
.lolnlnjr the vessel, will shortly follow 
the Algerlne south. The Shearwater 
will make, the coast cruise, extending 
her trip to Aoapulco, and will return 
to ICsfiuImalt In 'January.

Columbus, O.. the author of nearly 100 
books atid brochures on relijjloua and 
•SDclal topics and one of tlic foremost 
J'rotestaiit clergymen of the coun*^ry, 
delivered an address before th* stu-' 
dents of Stanford university the other 
day. He took for his subject "Plane- 
tary Politics," suggested by an anony- 
mous volume lecetitly published In 
Groat Brlttiin under the tl,tle of "The 
Great Analysis." 

In his address, Dr. Gladden -Httjiirfl''

"What is jmore important. It begins 

to look as though the time were near 
when a world-wide oo-operatlon would 
be not only poasible, but necessary for 
the supply of human needs. Svery civ- 
lUaed nation liuu a direct and vital In- 
tsrest In the productive Industries of 
the whole world." 

Dr. Gladden said that In investlgat- 
Inir and measuring the resources of the 
earth In preparing for the universal 
oonimanwealth. wo would be brought 
Into the preienpe of some stubborn 
facts. He said: 

"First — The fact of race will con- 
front ua. We are studying to bring 
all the peoples of the world Into friend- 
ly co-oporatlon. In that vast synthesis 
what shall we do with the races? Shall 
wa preserve and develop their racial 
peculiarities, or shall we blend them 
In composite humanity? There Is some- 
tlilng to be said on both sides. Wo 
haven't got to settle It offhand; we 
can wait. This world study may make 
tlie matter clearer. 

"We would not think It desirable to 
merse the apple and the pear and tlie 
Siberian poar Into one kind of fruit, or 
to blend the mastiff and the collie and 
the setter Into one kind of 
there seems to me quite as 
IS for emphasizing and pre- 
le varieties of the human 

one's country has been supposed to im- 
ply a certain amount of hostility to 
other countries. 

"Look at the tremendous fact that 
out of $1,200,000,000, more or less, ap- 
propriated by each American cnngreas, 
more than $800,000,000 goes to pay for 
past ' or future wars. Seventy cents 
out of every dollar levied by our gov- 
ernment for direct or indirect taxes 
goes tor war expenses. It costs our 
government, every year, for past or 
future wars, more Llian the entire cost 
of the Panama canal. And all the 
great nations are carrying Just such a 
crushing load. 

"Th* world has begun to feel that 
war must come to an end; that tliere 
are no possible differences between 
peoples which cannot be settled far 
more Justly and far less expensively 
by arbitration than by war. We need 
a world order. We are all bound to- 
gether. Every nation, every tribe, has 
a stake In the whole planet."

About a year ago we 

announced that we had deHber- 
ately entered into the task of building a 

ity at Coquitlam and proposed to carry that task through to suc- 
cess if we did not make a cent. 
So;..jiow that we have lately been calling your attention to the 
splendid manner in which COQUITLAM is making good, vou 
will doubtless pardon us if we briefly emphasize the fact that "the 
COQUITLAM TERMINAL COMPANY is making good, too, 
in a straightforward, faithful, solid and substantial manner.

Without bei-ng accused of unduly "blowing our horn/* may we not submit 
that the foregoing proves that the Coquitlam Terminal Company, as well 
as Coquitlam, is making good? ' ^ 

We can not give you all the details of the great forward movement at Coquit-

you get our beautiful new booklet, now in preparation, "Coquitlam, the In-

together tnl^ ^^itfetpMiiim when, com- 
|>*r«4 ,tif4th the horror* ot Hadomkeul, 
the headQuarters of the army. It l8 
the men who went through the awful 
hardships and sufferings of the re- 
treat, who lived for ten days on green 
corn or scraps of offal plclted up as 
they marched, tliat yield the greatest 
number of victims to the altar of Asiat- 
ic cholera. 

"I never actually entered that vil- 
lage, because the sights I saw from 
the outside caused me to turn my 
head in the opposite ilirecliou and llUed 
me with a vague tenor I had never 
known before. 

"Three days ago I rode over the hlllB. 
. intending to visit Hademlt^ul. I mount- 
ed the last slope which hid the valley 
In which it lle.«, and then I was brouslu 
to a standstill by the awful babel of 
sounds which arose beneath me. 

"I looked more closely, and found i 
was gazing into a valley of the aiiadow 
of Death. There was the station of 
Hademkeul, and a train was at the sta- 
tion. It was delayed with wretched 
specimens of sick humanity sftektag to 
escape from the dread spectre. 

"The train was leaving for ConStan- 
tlnople.^and all who could crawl wen.^ 
endt avorlng to secure a place on It, hop- 
'■ - thus to reach a haven of rftfug«. 
wvre wounded, some down with 
dj o nlory, others with f.'ntepU;, others 
witli feellnjj the first -sput^ms of th«- 
scourge itself, otlicrs were merely sick 
at heart. Unable to stand longer th • 
constant strain of waiting for their 
natural deaths, all were trying to es- 

"In the centre of Haili'mk'n; lay a 
large square formed on one side by 
some barracks, on two others by lines 
of ho.spital tr-nts, on the fourth by the 1 
high road. This square resembled r • 
successful flypaper in midsummer — It j 
was covered with corpses of dead and ! 
writhing bodies of living in all atti- ! 
tudes, some prone, some sitting, som< 
Icnceling, some constantly shifting, 
some with hands clasped as if in s\ip- 

"In some parts of the area dead were 
piled In heaps, in others those still liv- 
ing were almost as closely packed, 

"This shocking lake of misery was 
being constantly fed by rivulets of 
stretcher bearers bringing in fresh 
victims from (he campa and forts, and 
by others who crawled in of their own 
accord, seeming to prefer to end their 
days in company with their fellow men, 
or else expocting to find succor or re- 
lease from tlveir immediate torment.-*. 

"All the track."? leading to this im- 
promptu morgue were dotted with the 
bodies of those who had died on the 
road. From time to time empty bul- 
lock wagons would pass through and 
the bodies of those in whom life was 
extinct would bo dumped Into them, 
carted out of th« village, and thrown 
into great pits, where sleep thousands 
of poor Asiatic peasants. 

"Hademkeul is the Immediate prize 
for which the armies of two nations 
are now engaged in deadly struggle."

VIENNA, Nov. 28.— Some details of 
the libretto of the comic opera which 
the ex-Crown Princess of Saxony is 
writing In conjunction with her present 
husband have leaked out. She will 
play the leading part, Princess Flora, 
wife of a Crown Prl.nce, herself, It Is 
said. Her former husband, now Fred- 
erick of Saxony, GIron. and other men 
and women who hava figured in her 
life, are In the opera, too, very thinly 
disguised and easily recognizable. The 
first act represents the popular Ger- 
man festival called "Vogelshlessen," 
or the Wooden Bird; the second act 
takes place in a studio, while the third 
represents the gloomy reception room 
of A royal palace. This act Is entirely 
devoted to a satire of court jxersonasres 
and of court customs and morals. The 
opera will be produced In Paris and

Walker Wiilteside Coming — Walkrr 
Wliiteside brings his marvelously artis- 
tic production of 'The Typhoon" to the 
Victoria theatre on Tuesday, December 
3, direct from th« Hudson theatre In 
Now York, with all the fresliness of Us 
phenomenn-1 triumph In that most ex- 
clusive of New York theatres. The 
play, which was written by a Hungarian, 
Menyhert Lengyel, ha.s to do with «•. 
thrilling story of Japanese diplomacy, 
and for this reason possesses the wide- 
spread interest a great play should have. 
It breathes the siiirlt of devotion to 
Nlpon^ Mr. Whiteside, in th6 role of 
Tokeramo, is the embodiment of the 
spirit of the new east, and ylves life to 
a character which contains elements of 
true greatness. There is probably ;io 
actor better suited to play Tokeramo 
than Mr. Whiteside, with his Hue Btago 
gifts, and his experience in the por- 
trayal of Important character studies 
covering a period of many years. 

Slgnor auisepp* Agostlnl aad "Zia 
Boheme" — CtiM-'^lLleriiblc difference of 
opinion exists as to where the llr.-it 
production of Puccini's "La Boheme" 
look place, and at wltat time. Mr. 
Charles R. Baker, advance manager of 
the Lambardl (Pacific Coast) Grand 
-Opera Company, who is now In this city 
perfecting arrangements for the coming 
of the big organization, gives what ho 
s;iys arc the real facts of the :natter. 
The American premiere of "La Bohemu' 
occurred in Los Angeles on Thursday, 
October 14, 1897, when the work was 
sung by the Del Conte Opcra Company. 
Slgnor Giuseppe Agostini, the famous 
tenor, .sung the role of Rodolfo, scoring 
an immense ovation. The work was 
next heard on the Pacific coast in 1893, 
when Melba sang the role of Mlmi, and 
Miss .Schefr was the Musetta. Agostini, 
the tenor, has, since that time, been 
singing In the great operatic centers of 
Furope, appearing in tlie La Scale tliea- 
tre, Milan, on honor highly sougiit for 
by all operatic stars. He is now leading 
tenor with the Lambardl forces, anil will 
be heard in the role he created — Rodolfo 
— when the organization comes to this 
city. He Is a decided favorite -with the 
composers, Mnsoagnl and Puccini, and 
was .secured by .Slgnor Lambardl for his 
present tour at the earnest request of 
the latter composer. He is one of the 
most sought for tenors In liurope. The 
Lambardl Opera Company will appear at 
the Victoria theatre for iin eiisagement 
of three nights and a matinee, com- 
menilng Thursda.x, DccemVtrr B. 

Arthnr Hartmans, 'Whistler and 'Ve- 
lasquez — The story Is old of bow a lady 
•Mithuslast raved over AVhlstler's art, 
ending with — "You are the .greatest 
artist that ever lived — you and Velas- 
quez." Whereupon Whistler retorted 
dryly. "Pray. Madame, why drag In 
in Velastpiez'.'" A few years ago Arthur 
Hnrtmann. internationally acclaimed bs 
a master violinist, was touring Germany 
with the well known pianist Bauer. 
Kvery evening they appeared in a dif- 
ferent city, every night they shared a 
sleeping compartment on the trains, so 
that they m\itually agreed that the fa- 
tigues of an artlsla' life we're sufficient 
wlthovit adding thereunto that of con- 
versation. Karh concert opened and 
ended with a sonata for violin and 
piano, and in between eacli artist played 
a big solo. As the concerts succeeded 
each other, conversation had evolved 
Into signs only. It was In Dresden, 
after they had just played a Brahms 
Sonata and been recalled enthusiastical- 
ly, that Bauer gave Hartmann a tre- 
mendous blow on the shoulder and burst 
out: "Old man, that was wonderful. 
By Jove! I never heard yo\i play more 
magnificently. " Hartmann stsred, 

amused. "Never," continued Bauer, 
"have I heard a more magnificent per- 
formance. You did play marvelously — 
and — er — so did I." "Pray, why drag In 
Velasquez." was llartmann's laconic re- 
T>ly, returning Bauer's hearty slap on 
the shoulder. Hartmann appears nt the 
"Victoria theatre on December 2.

est committee at the capital this year 
will bp the senate divorce committe«, 
which has before it alreaOy no less than 
forty-one application^, which is easily 
the largest number on record. To hear 
and consider these forty, thu 
committee will have to hold almost 
perpetual sessions. During the last 
ffw years there has been an enormous 
growth in the number of divorce 
cases, and the burden Is becoming so 
heavy on the senate that the question 
of tsiabllshing a divorce court Is belnij 
'eeriouslj? discussed at Ottawa. 

During the first seven years after 
Confederation there were only four 
ilivorces in all, Kranted. In the year 
1S85 and during the first twenty years 
of Conrmleration, only eighteen di- 
vorces in all were allowed: During the 
nineties the applications for divorces 
ran only from one to six a year. Even 
ten years ago. 1902, there wore only 
two divorces granted. The year 189t( 
was the that the number of di- 
vorct's pa.ssed doublu figures, when 
fourteen were Rrnntod. Since then the 
number of couples seeking a way out 
of — thttr-jnartimonial dlfflcuUies by 
way of the dl-vorce committee; • H>av«, 
itteadily increased, until tlil.s' year there

divorce cases, 'for of the , -forty-one ap- 
plications this year fourteen come from 
the prairie provinces. British Columbia 
ha.s its own divorce court and settlee 
its own troubles.

' " "How very like Rubinstein's!' I said to 
myself, and glancing at my neighbor, I 
caught him In the net of looking to see 
who I was. He sprang up like a flash, 
threw his arms around me. and gave me a 
hearty smack then and there, to the great 
astonishment, T dare say, of Mrs. Grundy 
and the other guests. 

"Hans von Bulow I knew well. He was 
not only a splendid pianist, but a remark-

selected for my second concert In Berlin, 

"'I never give lessons,' he snappfd out. 

" 'Oh, yes, you do,' I coolly contradicted. 
"One learns something of value from yov: 
every time, you play or conduct, whether 
you intend It for a lesson or not.' 

"He glared at me for a minute, then his 
face relaxed. 

" 'Na,' said he. "it Is no use. With you 
one can never have the last word!" and hH 
gave me the deihred lessons as amiably a.s 
anyone could wish. He strongly advised 
me not to play that concerto In Berlin be- 
cause It was not well received by the Berlin 
critics when first given.

Bngaiile Baported to Ha,ve Been Hor- 
rified at rreaent-Day Prlcea 
of App»r«l 

I.OXDOX. Nov. 28.— 1/outl complainta 
arc heard becatisc of the huge advance 
In the prices charged for women's ap- 
parel in London. There is no doubt that 
In tfto last twenty years there, lias been 
un enormous increase in tlie chargea, 
not only for very elaborate toilets, but 
for simple tailor-made coatunie.«<, and, 
as for hats and nillllnery genernlly, llicy 
hove now reached a pric- that verges on 
tho ridiculous. 

Twenty to £25— 1100 to JUS— 1.^ gen 
orally asked for a tailor-made co.stume, 
although It is a well-known fact that 
a few years ngo an ordinary tailor- 
made yachting costume could be ob- 
tained for half that ^um at the very 
bent shops. 

Not long ago, it Is said, the ex-Km- 
press Kugenie expre.o.ied herself as hor- 
rifled at these present-day prices and 
.Irclarod that she herself hod nevt-r 
paid more tlian £25 for her most mag- 
iiHloent toilets, tt is quite certain that 
this sum would not buy an elaborate 
toilet that could be worn nowadays at 
court or state balls, or even at tho 
Ascot meeting. One hundred, £150, and 
even more Is not infrequetly paid for 
court dresses, ad many of the beauti- 
fully draped toilets that created a aen- 
Nation at Ascot this year are known to 
have 'cost £50 to £60. 

A few years ago wonrjen scarcely 
thought of payln* more than five or six 
KUlneas for a hat, but now that sunr> 
would not go very far toward purchas- 
ing the elaborate creations which moat 
women think necessary. This, to a cer- 
tain •xtcnt. Is due to the inorcaaed price 
of feathers — ospreya In particular. Os- 
trich feather* are also very costly.

BAI/riMdtlK, Md., Nov. 28. — In pre- 
senting the report of the lly fighting 
committee of the Amfrlcan Civic Asso- 
ciation, Chairman Kdward Hatch, jr., 
expressed the hope that there may be no 
more hy killing contests. 

This sentiment look the as.semblcd 

fly fiBlitcrs by surprise, which was dls- 

j sipated, however, when Mr. Hatch said: 

"We cannot too much or too 
often upon cleanliness as the begin- 
ning, middle and end of the fly-flghting 
campaign. 'Swat the fly' as a slogan give way to 'Starve the ny.' Tho 
latter Is more eup^ionious and infinitely 
more practical." 

JUr. Hatch said that tlie commlttco 
was able to report the most successful 
year's work since the Inauguration of 
the popular movement looking to tlic 
extermination of the house fly in I'JOS. 
He summarized a series of reports com- 
ing from cities and towns in all parts 
of the country and said that the cam- 
paign now Is becoming world-wide in Its 
extent, and that letters for advice have 
been received hy the committee from 
correspondents in England. France, 
Italy, Ireland, India, Egypt, the Philip- 
pines, Korea, Australia, Hawaii, Singa- 
pore, Cuba and Venezuela. 

In its concluding phases, the com- 
mittee's report made a feature of tho 
fact that In cities in which substantial 
cash prizes were awarded in no ca»«" did 
the number of flies killed In the whole 
of a campaign exc(!ed the quantity 
which could easily havi- been reared 
from an averaged alzed pile of stable 
refuse in the course of a few weeks. 

While the education of value of such 
fly-klllinlg campaigns cannot he over- 
estimated, the report said It would seem 
that greater results might be obtained 
by conducting campaigns against dirty 
stables and back yards, garbage heaps 
and dumps and all places that produca 
files and supply them with infection.

Public Sentiment In the Saxplre Appears 

to Bo Against G-overument 


NEW TORK. Nov. 28.— From the time 
that the German government began the 
formulation of plans to exclude the 
Standard Oil Companies from the Ger- 
man markets none of the officers of any 
of these companies has expressed the 
slightest concern, lucrative though the 
German market has proved to them. 
They seemed to have taken it for grant- 
ed that either the rest of the world of- 
fered them a wide enough market or 
that the German syndicate must either 
buy from tliem directly or Indirectly, 
or bid up the price to the indirect ad- 
vantage of the American companies. 
Their confidence does not now seem to 
have been misplaced, for the popular 
protest against the plans of the minis- 
try is now loud In " Germany, and ■. the 
plan of the ministry, If not previously 
abandoned,, is sure;.: to .be contested 
sharply in the Reichstag. The German 
consumer does net see where he conies 
In to benefit from an advance in the 
price of oil to the profit of a German 
bankers' syndicate. Moreover, the mem- 
bers of the; syndicate not certain of 
their ability to secure oil from Independ- 
ent companies without boosting the.

Ziowest Order of People in India Show 
Signs of Advancement 

BO\rBAY, Nov, 28.— The Rev. Dr. F. 
E. Jeffrey, of the American board, who 
Is here, says that the most remarkable 
success is attending the work of Chris- 
tian missionaries among the Nardars of 
Southern India, and that the propaganda 
is spreading rapidly among all the 
poorer people of that vast region. The 
Nardars eHpeclally are coming by hun- 
dreds to the Christian churches and 
asking to be enrolled as converts. 

The traditional occupation of this 
caste, according to the missionary, is to 
climb the palm tree, cut the flower bud, 
hang a pot on the bud stem, catch tho 
Juice and make it into a sugar or Icell, 
the n*itive beer. Because of the low 
scale of their work tho Nardars have 
been long impo.sed on by the Brahmins, 
not even beinng allowed to worship Jn 
the temples: but since the advent of the 
mission houses, where they are wel- 
comed, they have not only forsaken 
their old beliefs, but are engaging in 
mercantile pursuits and agriculture. 

These material advances, says Mr. 
Jeffrey, have been potent in spread- 
ing the fame of Christianity to other 
tribes and castes.

from floor to cellhiK. I'nrt of the design, 
which Is bold and firm in character and in 
outlino, hiis bocn rtcstrayeil by layer upon 
layer of plaster and ■.v.ill paper. The chief 
feature of the design Is groups of arrow- 
armed cuplds mounted on steeds In full cry 
with banners flying and phimes waving. At 
each onrl and In the centre are huge 
medallions In which one might traco the 
figures nf men's heads, though th« fcaturan 
arc obliterated. 

On one of theso heads tho manner In 
which the hair is dressed Is undoubtedly 
of tho Jaoobenn period and according to a 
prominent antiquarian the whole painting 
Is the work of a Jacobite artist. 

The same authority snys tho design is 
similar to those used by the Flemish sohool 
of decorators of that period, and aecordinK 
to the antiquarian's theory this bedroom 
WM the guest-chamber and the walls were 
decorted when tapestries want out of vogue.

A Matter of Postage 

It has been brought 
to our attention that 
many persons who 
mail The Colonist to 
friends abroad put 
only a one-cent stamp 
on the wrapper, the 
general impression be- 
ing that one cent will 
pay the postage on a 
newspaper irrespec- 
tive of its weight. This 
is a mistake. The or- 
dinary daily issue of 
The Colonist requires 
two cents postage, 
and the Sunday edi- 
tion three cents. 
Newspapers mailed 
with the postage in- 
sufficiently paid are 
not sent out by the 

ordering change 
of address should be 
particular to give both 
new^ and old addresses
